This section introduces the royal family. Welcome to the weirdness.

Read it. It's pretty epic. Then again.... how were they female skeletons? How could you tell if the shape of the hip was covered by the skirt? Back then everyone wore skirts.
 
In Aztec mythology, a Tzitzimitl, (plural Tzitzimimeh), is a deity associated with stars. They were depicted as skeletal female figures wearing skirts often with skull and crossbones designs. In post conquest descriptions they are often described as demons or devils, but this does not necessarily reflect their function in the prehispanic belief system of the Aztecs.

The Tzitzimimeh were female deities and as such related to fertility and they were worshiped by midwives and parturient women. The leader of the Tzitzimimeh was the Goddess Itzpapalotl who was the ruler of Tamoanchan, the paradise where the Tzitzimimeh resided.

The Tzitzimimeh were also associated with the stars and especially the stars that can be seen around the Sun during a solar eclipse. This was interpreted as the Tzitzimimeh attacking the Sun, this caused the belief that during a solar eclipse, the Tzitzimime would descend to the earth and devour human beings.

The Tzitzimimeh were also feared during other ominous periods of the Aztec world, such as during the five unlucky days called Nemontemi which marked an unstable period of the year count and during the New Fire ceremony marking the beginning of a new calendar round. Both were periods associated with the fear of change.

The Tzitzimimeh had a double role in Aztec religion, they were protectresses of the feminine and progenitresses of mankind. They were also powerful and dangerous, especially in periods of cosmic instability.
